A truly charming hotel experience. Lovely secluded beach, really good accommodation, wonderfully friendly and helpful staff and first rate restaurant of a standard far higher than most Caribbean hotels with a menu constantly changing. Recommend without hesitation.

Great staff, great spot, great food. We had the pleasure of staying in an ocean front suite the first few nights, then a hillside suite for a few nights. Both excellent. The staff (every one!) is wonderful. Outdoor shower ( private, don't worry ), is nice. Water sports guys are great, too. Enjoyed rides in their zodiac! I couldn't pick...

We stayed in a hilliside suite for our honeymoon. The staff was incredible, the food was top notch, and HB was the best resort we have ever experienced. I would definitely recommend to anyone looking to go to a quiet, guest-friendly resort

It is just wonderful, when you arrive to a place you have already visited, but long time ago, and you get a " welcome back, miss and mister R."! The bungalows are nice, quiet, well furbished, a fridge that will be refilled every morning, a coffee percolator with first class coffee. The staff is still supernice. Beach and sea to...

Everything about this hotel is just superb. It's not too big, no kids, staff that are so well trained that they just take care of everything before you have to ask, really good cocktails, really excellent cuisine, fabulous rooms and more. They say just relax and they mean it. You don't need to worry about if there are enough beach...

Spent a long weekend that wasn't long enough! Stayed in a garden villa for 2 nights, and a hillside villa our final night. While the accommodations in both were wonderful, the view from #39 was truly amazing. So thankful for that opportunity! As for the food, absolutely delicious. Excellent selection of fresh, creative dishes. Even when we opted to skip...

The service the staff provided was second to none - it was definitely the trip and honeymoon of a lifetime! We woke up everyday in amazement of the views and couldn't have asked for a better experience. From the second we landed until the time we were dropped back off at the airport, everything was SO above par! I definitely...

We've never been so sad to leave a vacation before. The views from our Hillside suite, the food (the best all inclusive food we've ever had, top notch!), the staff, and the sunsets truly made our honeymoon an unforgettable trip!!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
~ Conde Nast Traveler 2015 Gold List Winner ~ The quiet, independently owned Hermitage Bay is comprised of just 27 luxury cottages so that "even at its busiest, the place seems remote and quaint." Whether visiting for the first time or returning as a friend, you'll enjoy a welcome familiarity and "sensation of belonging" from the moment you arrive. Tucked into a beautiful bay in one of the most secluded corners of Antigua, it is perfect for those seeking to escape the hustle and bustle of city life. Spanning 16 acres of lush tropical gardens, our eco-chic, luxury hotel provides all the comforts of a 5 star resort without compromising the natural habitat that thrives around it. Our open-air facilities, extensive beach and detached rooms allow you to unwind in isolated luxury. Each of the 7 Beachfront and 3 Garden Suites features a spacious split level lounge and patio, while the large wrap-around decks and private plunge pools of the 17 Hillside Pool Suites afford the added luxury of soaking up the Caribbean sun from the privacy of your own sun bathing deck. Whether enjoying lunch by the pool, dining in the beachfront restaurant, or having breakfast in bed, every meal feels privately catered. The menus change daily and feature freshly squeezed local juices, locally grown produce, and organic ingredients. At Hermitage Bay, all dishes are prepared to order, special requests are encouraged, and we are always happy to help with dietary requirements. Non-motorised water sports are included and a shuttle service to and from town and Shirley Heights is available for an additional charge. ... more   less
